"Greg Baldwin, president of the nonprofit online volunteer group VolunteerMatch, said the nonprofit sector and its ranks of volunteers are just as vulnerable to economic swings as other sectors."

"Think about the skills and passions you have and how they could be put to good use...VolunteerMatch, Catchafire, and MovingWorlds connect people with expertise to initiatives that can benefit from their skills."
"Online resources like VolunteerMatch.org...can help you find a wide variety of opportunities, filtered by location, interest and suitability for different people (for example, groups and children)."
